P. Milisande’s first novel-‘As Above So Below’



By Ching Dee
Vancouver-Canada
May 28, 2016

 
 


With Maia is her best friend Elle, a fellow intrepid soul and an activator by heart, she pushes Maia to break boundaries. Living her life one emotion and one color at a time, she joins Maia in her quest for answers.

As the stars gave direction in the darkness of the night, the ocean floors revealed more to be discovered. “With its discovery, the past threatens once again to re-enact its painful shattering.” Will Maia finally find the answers to quell her deepest fears, her innermost longings?

Utilizing the unending expanse of one’s imagination, P. Milisande taps into the reader’s creative soul, bringing them into a journey from one reality to another—showing realms of darkness and of light—in order to find the courage to explore, to discover more realms from chapter to another, and perhaps to seek more questions to fuel adventure.
